Tonal languages[edit]

If we ever get an expert on board, perhaps it can be added that chain-shifts occur in the tones of languages that use them as morphemes. I'm not an expert and have only my direct experience of such shifts in consonants, consonant clusters, vowels and tones in Lao and Thai languages. --Pawyilee (talk) 03:39, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

How about some audio files?[edit]

This article would be much more accessible to the average person if audio examples were provided to demonstrate these changes in pronunciation. DMahalko (talk) 17:52, 29 February 2012 (UTC)
